Football star. Single dad. And once, a long time ago, mine.
Coach by Devney Perry is now live!
I’ve spent the better part of a decade forgetting Ford Ellis. If he had just stayed away from Montana, I might have erased the memory of his striking blue eyes and rugged smile forever. Avoiding him was easy when the only place I saw his face was on ESPN—and a remote control could fix that problem.
Except my boss just hired Ford as the new head coach for the Treasure State Wildcats. Not only will I be stuck watching him on the sidelines this season, but avoiding him will be impossible now that we’re working together.
Maybe I haven’t forgotten Ford. Maybe I still dream about what we might have been. Maybe he hasn’t forgotten me either.
Except those maybes won’t change the fact that we were never meant to be. Maybe he was mine once. But as of today, the only thing I’ll be calling Ford Ellis is Coach.

My Be the Girl Review . . .
It has been awhile since I read anything from K.A. Tucker and it just reminded my why I love all that is K.A. Tucker.
I quite liked this book, it was relevant and emotional.
"She told me that the sooner you figure out how to like yourself
through your own eyes, the sooner you'll stop trying to see yourself
through everyone else's."
Too often story arcs are obvious in what direction they are
heading, in Be the Girl it kept me on my toes and gave me surprises in
direction which ended up having way more impact in the end instead of
the assumed direction I originally thought it was heading.
is too relevant these days and with social media it is even a bigger
issue. I thought this story nailed it on all aspects on how bullying can
effect multiple people not just the intended target.
Cassie and thought she was so well written. Emmett was amazing and an
amazing big brother to Cassie. Aria was the crap shoot. At first I
wasn't sure how her character was going to unfold and I made a lot of
assumptions which were all wrong.
When we found Aria's truth I
can see why many could turn on not liking her character but life is
about hiccups and hurdles and its in those events where we learn life
lessons. It is just how we choose to learn from them. To make things
better or continue down the same path.
I liked Aria's growth as a
character and I thought she was so well written. Her relationship with
her mother and uncle were great. I adored her banter with Emmett but I
also loved her friendship with Cassie and that friendship and learning
from her past helped her grow to the person she became.
I liked that Emmett was the 'big guy' on campus but he and his friends were super sweet and kind.
biggest regret in this story is the epilogue ended at the end of their
school year, I would have loved to see a glimpse of what happens 5 or 10
years from now and see how things worked out for Aria, Emmett and
The Insiders is the first in a brand new, page-turning romance trilogy from New York Times bestseller, Tijan!
is as normal as could be, with a genius IQ and a photographic memory.
But still, normal for her. Then, things happen—a guy breaks into her
house in the middle of the night to take her hostage. She finds out her
father is actually billionaire tech genius Peter Francis, the same guy
she’s idolized all her life. She learns all this when she meets dark,
mysterious, and electrifying Kashton Colello. He’s an associate of her
father’s, and he gives Bailey two choices—go with him and meet her
father or survive on her own because those kidnappers are going to try
again. It’s a no-brainer.
After this, three things become clear for Bailey:
1. She’s living at her father’s sprawling estate, complete with bodyguards and the best security that money can buy.
2. She’s no longer an only child. She has three siblings and has no idea what to do with them and vice versa.
She is being guarded by Kash himself. Personally guarded. And there is a
lot of guarding going on there and some of it is going to drive her
A complete outsider in a world of wealth and decadence,
Bailey has to find her way within a family that has more secrets than
she could have imagined. One of these secrets could be deadly…

My The Insiders Review . . .
I had been on a huge
Tijan kick when I first read this book. And now all I have left is her paranormal books then I have
read everything that is Tijan. So, when I saw this opportunity to read
and review this book I jumped at the chance.
This is a new
series and its great! Though you are left with a cliffhanger. Bailey is a
certifiable genius when it comes to the computer world. So when she
almost gets kidnapped she's brought into a world she didn't know
existed. She gets thrown into a family she didn't know about and is
being guarded by a mysterious gorgeous man named Kash.
instantly drawn to Kash and vice versa. I loved the chemistry between
these two and I loved the banter and relationship between all the
siblings. There were so many layers to this story that it keeps you on
your toes from beginning to the end. Once I picked it up I couldn't put
it down and then I was left with anxiety because we have to wait to find
out what happens with Bailey and Kash and all the elements that come
At the end we also get bonus with what is written on a
sign that Bailey writes but I have to admit the sign is long. So,
either Kash is a speed reader or the sign was the length of her body.
Even though the sign was long the words were sweet. I can't wait for
more from this author and this series.
“I can always
count on Tijan to write an action-packed, intense, emotional story that
will have me invested until the very last page.”—Helena Hunting, New York Times bestselling author
No longer an outsider, Bailey has a family and love that she never could’ve imagined.
Used to living in the shadows, Kash will now do anything to protect his family and his woman.
They will take on the world together…
In the meantime, stunning motives, lies, and explosive secrets continue to unfold.
1. Quinn is in jail, awaiting trial.
2. Friends might actually be enemies.
3. And what is Calhoun plotting? More importantly, will Kash discover it before it’s too late?
Everything will come to a head as passion and danger ignite in The Damaged.

My The Damaged Review . . .
When I got this opportunity to review this book I was ecstatic. I was
left hanging with the Insiders and couldn't wait for more from this
story and from this author. Tijan never seems to disappoint with her
characters and stories.
At the end of Insiders we are left with a
twist with Kash & Bailey. The Damaged begins shortly after the end
of The Insiders.
I love how Kash is with Bailey especially after
he admits his love for her. Bailey is trying to deal with the
aftermaths of all the issues that happened in the first book while Kash
is trying to prepare for a psychological war.
There is so many
webs and layers with this story. With Bailey trying to fit in with her
new family, while at the same time fit in with her fellow students and
into a world she was never part of. But in reality she just wants to be
normal but there are so many things stopping her from enjoying the
simple things, like friends and football games.
There are so many
other moving elements as well with Calhoun, Quinn, Marie, Theresa,
Payton, Peter, Matt, Victoria, Hoda, Camille and then we are left with a
couple of big ones at the end of this book leaving us hanging and
needing more. There are so many more unanswered questions and I am dying
because as of right now The Revenge isn't slated until mid September 2022!! OMG it feels forever. I NEED
Well even though it will feel like forever it will
be worth the wait as I absolutely LOVE this series. I was hooked from
the 1st page of the Insiders and I am completely enraptured into this
4.5 I am dying to find out what happens thumbs up!
